                       FREE BIRD


        The track is based in G , and the 5 minute solo used mainly
the G minor pentatonic scale. I suggest practicing the sliding intro
with your finger first and then get out the bottleneck. Also it's
a good idea to rig your electronic tuner (you do have one?) up so
that when you play the guitar a bend a note you can see how close you get
, you should get a power supply for your tuner so you can turn it on
permanantly when your amp is switched on . This really does improve
you pitch. It is vital that you get the right pitch of the notes with
the slide or it sounds useless. Also add a bit vibrato with the slide
for extra effect. You only need a little bit distortion and not to much
for the solo either. Okay here 'tis.

Thats the main song covered , this repeats a few times and then when
come to the outro section . You can take your slide of now and
change to some rhythm playing and then it's the solo.
oh yes this is where there is some slight phasing , but also it's
switched off for the main body of the solo and gradually builds up
into the end section.

The Guitar Solo
---------------

        Now the solo comes in , you guitar should not be totally
screaming for this but should have plenty of gain giving a good impact
the solo is very energetic , in the 2nd and 3rd sections notice
how the feel and timing slightly changed , I am only going to cover
the first part.

 As you can see it uses the same riff repeating a lot it seems daft
 writing it all out like I just did so i'll show you the riff
 and how many times it repeats



E-----15--------------15-------------15-------------15-------------15-------
B--18----18p15-----18----18p15----18----18p15----18----18p15----18----18p15-

E---------------------------------------------------------------------------

  This is repeated 3 times and on the 4 time play this:


E-----15--------------15--------15-----------------------
B--18----18p15-----18----18p15-----18p15----18b20b18p15--

 The next riff which is repeated twice is :
